We then had to retrace our steps to get back down to the beach, which was slightly hazardous, but luckily ...

Curiously, they let both Greg and I have it even though I only bought a tea for $1.50 and Greg had nothing. I checked my emails and Facebook, but not the Daily Mail Online and Greg managed to upload Day 2 of our blog before the wifi started playing up, so we didn't have enough time to do anything else. Four new passengers joined us ...
... and transported to the breeding centres. In addition to the tortoises, we also saw a bunch of different birds again. We came back on board the boat and had some down time before our briefing and dinner. I have now discovered that my new favourite spot to sit is on the stairs at the front of the boat and did just that watching the sunset and the lights of the town come on. As I headed to the briefing, there was a sea lion that jumped into the dingy. It was rolling around for ...
